Not the kind of woods you could get through easily, other than on the path. It's a nice destination, but if the lean-to is full you might have to backtrack a ways to find a spot, as I recall
Yeah, I remember noticing that the forest was absolutely dense with undergrowth. I also had the same observation: that if you trekked all the way out there only to find that the lean-to was already occupied, you'd be SOL with regards to finding your own spot. A good destination to keep some extra energy in reserve if you're planning to camp there, just in case.
